This Mother’s Day, contemporary European restaurant 1919 Waterboat House and scenic hidden oasis bar The Rooftop are featuring a French-inspired brunch with a Secret Garden themed twist– the perfect luxurious treat to pamper mom.
Motherhood is both the greatest thing and the hardest thing– marked by selflessness, full of sacrifices, and fueled by unconditional love. With Mother’s Day around the corner, happening this year on 13 May, there is no better way to show your gratitude and appreciation for the most important women in our lives than 1919 Waterboat House’s indulgent and enchanting French-inspired Secret Garden brunch.
Nestled along the iconic Singapore River in the middle of Singapore’s Central Business District, 1919 Waterboat House is aptly named as it housed in a colonial heritage building known to be one of Singapore’s busiest ports. Head up to the second floor to enter 1919 Waterboat House’s majestic venue– a perfect blend of classic sophistication and quintessential modern elegance. Beautifully adorned in slate and ivory tones, gold accents give the restaurant an air of regal opulence, while chevron-patterned wood floors add a nautical touch to honor the building’s maritime heritage. Add a touch of magic to your celebrations this Mother’s day as lush greenery, motifs and garden designs transform the space and 1919 Waterboat House’s secret garden comes to life– a picture-perfect setting for dinner and drinks with a romantic flair.
Specially designed to honor the leading ladies in our lives, 1919 Waterboat House’s “Oh-La-La Maman” Mother’s Day Brunch is a semi à la carte buffet with a delicious focus on all things French. Start the celebrations off right with a selection of the finest French Cheese and Charcuterie boards, including Smoked Cheddar, Camembert, Mimolette, and Roquefort Blue Cheese, as well as an endless flow of French delicacies. Opt for delightfully flavourful dishes such as Salmon Tartare served with Picos, Truffled Cold Angel Hair Pasta, and Saint Jacques– pan-seared scallops with piquillo pepper and wholegrain mustard. Indulge in the velvety Veloute aux Champignons– a soup of porcini mushroom served with croque monsieur and creamed leek, delicious Lamb Parmentier– lamb ragout with potato sarlardaises and topped with ratatouille, and the luxuriously rich Grilled Foie Gras– goose liver grilled to perfection and served with apple grapefruit and ginger caramel.
Don’t forget to save some room for the star of the event, the main course. Choose your main from a hedonistic selection of iconic French dishes: Bar de Ligne, red bass meuniere served with potato mousseline and natural jus; the classic Confit de Canard with duck confit imported from France and served with garden salad and cherry sauce; or the tantalizing Beef Bourguignon with impossibly tender braised beef that melts in the mouth served with patatas bravas, wasabi kale and garlic silvers. Top your celebrations off with decadent desserts, from a mouth-watering selection of made-to-order savoury and sweet Crêpes, to a variety of French pastries and sweets. Satisfy your sweet tooth with dainty and delicious Assorted Bijoux, and sink your teeth into indulgent Profiteroles– French choux pastry balls with cream or custard filling.
Head one floor up to treat mom with a tipple or two at The Rooftop– a laid-back, intimate hidden oasis bar with breathtaking panoramic views of the Singapore skyline. Let your inner Mixologist run wild and brew your own hedonistic concoctions with the do-it-yourself “Mum-jito” station. Featuring a basic mix of original mojito or berry mojito, you can mix, match and shake up the drink of your dreams, and even top your cocktails off with a selection of additional purees, honey and fresh fruits.
With 1919 Waterboat House’s dedicated kid’s haven area, moms can even relax and unwind while their little ones are well taken care of. From an arts and crafts table and a magician show, to face painting and balloon sculpting, there will be plenty of activities to keep kids delighted and fully entertained.
